Bright Stars Quilt
Good Morning, my friends! Today I’d like to share the quilt that I made using Bright Stars by Teresa Kogut for the Riley Blake Designs project tour.
The first time I saw this collection, I got so caught up in the beautiful details in each of the prints. This is my first time using folk art style fabric and I'm so happy with it. I just love these designs and the colors of the collection too.
I looked around and considered many quilt patterns to make with this fabric. In the end, I came up with this. I think I've seen something similar before but I could find no pattern. I did not write one but I will tell you how to make one block and then you can use that to make a similar quilt if desired.
This quilt is composed of the same block in different colors used throughout the quilt top.
The block measures 6 1/2" unfinished. To make this block, you'll need 1- 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" square of white, 2 triangles cut from a 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" square of white that was cut on both diagonals to yield four triangles per square, 2 triangles cut from a 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" square of blue that was cut on both diagonals to yield four triangles per square, and 1 triangle cut from a 6 7/8" x 6 7/8" square of blue that was cut on one diagonal to yield two triangles per square.
Take the 2 small white triangles and 2 small blue triangles and sew the two pieces as shown below.
Then take a 3 1/2" square of white and sew it to the correct triangle unit as shown below.
Next add the other triangle unit as shown below.
